Cone Character Friends
Makin' some cute characters made out of cones with my kindegarten and 1st grade students. We've all seen those fantastic cone chickens, they are really fun, but couldn't we turn those cones into anything?
I started by asking my students where they might see a cone, we came up with ice cream cones, traffic cones, party hats and witches hats.
Don't forget about the animals, I think the cones could be transformed into any animal!
I wonder what your little guys will come up with?
I cut large half circles and showed them how to shape it into a cone.
Then they used scrap paper to make the details like ears, noses, legs and arms. Some student are making birds, dogs, Easter eggs and even stormtroopers.
I let my students decide on what they wanted to create, but if you want to stick to a theme then kuddos!
Here's where I saw some cool chicken/rooster cone crafts... krokotak.com
